of the heavy artillery. that would be the former president, bill clinton of the here is cnn's white house correspondent. >> reporter: for president obama there is no more powerful surrogate than president clinton. something he acknowledged in an interview released thursday. the last time we had healthy broad-based groelth was when he was president and people remember that. so he can say things that people immediately grab on to. that's why clinton stars in campaign ads. >> president obama has a plan to rebuild america from the ground up. >> he headlines fundraisers and rallies. this one last week with bruce spring teen. they will be visiting florida, ohio and virginia together. >> he has particular appeal in the african-american community and i would guess among suburban women. the kind of folks that are torn. i think bill clinton would be a significant asset for the president. in may clinton undercut the obama campaign's main argument that mitt romney's business experience does not qualify him to lead the country. >> a man who's been governor and had a sterling business career crosses th
throat on tuesday night, but i also think exactly what they're doing -- look, bill clinton wherever they can get him. and going to all of the swing states wherever they can get him. i think more importantly, to actually show real people. in ohio, to have all of the auto workers whose jobs have been saved by the president's rescue of the auto industry, in sharp contrast with what mitt romney wanted to do, which was to let the industry go bankrupt and also in sharp contrast with the absolutely flat-out deceiving ads that mitt romney is running in ohio right now, where he even had to have the ceo of gm and the ceo of chrysler come out to say that they're lies and that he needs to cut it out. i think in ohio, such an important state for mitt romney where the president is leading right now, the obama campaign is doing exactly what they need to be doing. >> at a time like this, the visuals are just as important as the rhetoric. thank you both, maria, ana, nice to see you. >>> it is the other big story, superstorm sandy. it left behind widespread disruption and is blamed for dozens of deat
to pennsylvania to campaign today. and one of the big guns on the obama side, the former president clinton will be campaigning here in pennsylvania on monday. fred, i got here last night. i turned on the tv watching the local news. a lot of campaign ads. you know what? in the final nine days of this campaign in pennsylvania, $10 million worth of ads. most of them from the romney campaign and its allies. they're outspending the obama campaign 2 to 1. fred, nobody, no republican has won pennsylvania since 1988 in a presidential contest. of course, the romney campaign thinks with the polls tightening up they have a chance. take a look at this. you mentioned the polg eed the . a four point advantage in the president. that is within the sampling area. president obama had a bigger lead here in pennsylvania just a few weeks ago. fred? >> so, paul, is that feeling that the ads have helped the mitt romney campaign kind of put themselves over the top or at least near the top? >> reporter: this state got no attention in the presidential contest until the last week or two. you know what? the obama cam
for the candidates. their wives, the former president bill clinton, the house speaker john boehner all campaigning down to the wire. cnn is covering their every move. our correspondents are in key locations in critical states. any one of which could ultimately decide who will be the next president of the united states. we're going to -- let's go to colorado right now. mitt romney is speaking there but jim acosta is there setting the stage. tell us what's going on. >> reporter: mitt romney just arrived here just a few moments ago. he has been delivering his closing argument to the crowd here and he's been doing that all day long. waking up in new hampshire, moving on to iowa and here in colorado for two stops. he has been going after the president on that new unemployment data, he has also been talking about what he would do if he's elected president. talking about cutting the budget, eliminating the president's health care law and tapping into domestic energy resources. i have to tell you the one message that they have been hitting hard in the last final days of this campaign, they have been going
will be here tomorrow. bill clinton last night and this morning. there is a lot of surrogate traffic and part of that is because early voting is under way right now and goes on through tomorrow. and both sides are really trying to energize people and get them out to the polls during this week. >> brianna, i'm looking behind you. just quickly peek over the back of your shoulder to your left, air force one just came right into a perfect view for us. thank you very much. but i want to ask you, this was a campaign stop in green bay that was really supposed to happen tuesday, which the president cancelled because of the storm and emergency work that he needed to do. so what did they do? did they go on with the event as scheduled and then add this one, or have they just rejigged the schedule? >> reporter: they sort of adjusted it a little bit. i think it was an evening event was the idea on tuesday. but for instance, charles woodson, who, yes, did make that very generous $100,000 donation -- or announced it here to the red cross, he was going to be at the event tuesday, and he was at the event here
clinton days. yes, he is talking about change, he's casting himself as the change candidate and i think that is why they went out to iowa today, not to unveil any new economic proposals. you don't really do that in the final stage of a campaign. what they wanted to do was talk about this message that they unveiled yesterday here in ohio and that he is the candidate of not just change, but big change as he likes to say on the campaign trail. >> in terms of weather, brianna, have there been any changes to the president's schedule next week? you mentioned some of his stops. do we know how vulnerable those are to weather? >> yeah, that's right, he's heading to florida, he's heading to virginia. so certainly some of his stops are going to be vulnerable. we've already seen a change, this just came out publicly, anderson. he was supposed to head out to travel on monday to florida. his first stop. he's now going to be traveling on monday, as you know michelle obama canceled a new hampshire appearance on monday or pardon me, tuesday, because of weather concerns. vice president joe biden was supp
the opponent. >> and using campaign talking point. what about mtv when bill clinton did it in 1994. does it still rock to go on mtv? >> it was boring. i was like why do you care. anyway, sway callaway, the dj was the interviewer, and sway asked good questions. he asked about president obama please address the people that graduated from college with so much hope for your campaign 2008 who now don't have jobs. he really laid it out. then president obama said well, you know, a college education will earn a million dollars, that study, sway never asked a follow-up, never came close to asking a follow-up and only would say uh-huh, thank you. he was kind of cowed by being with the president. >> the president doing morning joe, spent a couple days with the morning anchor. brian williams got extraordinary access for rock center and nbc news. >> you know what a fan i am of rock center with chelsea clinton and the bowing anchor where he bowed the president. in fairness, i thought he did a good job deconstructing what the campaign team was setting up, when they went to the fair in iowa, put hay bai
in youngstown, ohio, for tomorrow. president clinton and vice president biden will still be there. the president is not going to be there. he has an event tomorrow morning in florida but he's not going to ohio. he's going back to the white house. as for mitt romney, we're watching his campaign very closely. he has a campaign event here in ohio tomorrow morning after this event with paul ryan in a few minutes. and then he goes to wisconsin and iowa, two states that should be protected from hurricane sandy for the time being. but, don, i have to tell you, a lot of this is very interesting to watch because we're all sort of wondering how is this hurricane going to affect the race? which candidate will it affect more? will it affect the president because it will be taking him off the campaign trail. he won't be able to campaign quite as much. or will it make him perhaps appear more presidential because he'll be looking at storm damage and that sort of thing? the romney campaign was asked about that earlier today. they did not want to speculate but the obama campaign is also concerned about it becaus
his message. he has a new closing argument. he's dropped the line and instead he's about bill clinton and what bill clinton's role was in doing kind of the right by the economy. and now talking about himself, barack obama, president obama as a leader who unites people. brings people together. and is now going back to the message of change from 2008, saying not talking about changing washington, but bringing americans' voices into washington and talking about himself as a unifier, clearly a mantle he is picking up in the wake of his leadership role in the role he's taken after superstorm sandy. >> it's amazing. the twist and turns this race has taken, i guess every presidential race does in the final days. a new polling out from colorado, still a very tight race there. what does it mean for next tuesday? what do the number show? >> the numbers in colorado show 50-48 for the president. that's a statistical tie. this is a state that is going down right to the very end. you can tell that when you're here. the early voting. this is one of the places republicans have even a slight advantage
that they might understand it if it were bill clinton explaining it to them. i think that -- that obama really has been awful at explaining his policies and explaining the state of the economy for the last three or four years. >> i'd like to say again policies do matter deeply. example, for the viewer, next year it's predicted we'll go into recession again if the fiscal cliff is not addressed. and we do go over it. these are decisions that have to be made by lawmakers before christmas time or the new year in regard to tax and sequester and spending. it's there in the books, and it's probably accurate. i think we let ourselves off the hook when we compare ourselves to europe. it's not so great just to be less bad than the others which is where we are. >> i want to first talk about the fiscal cliff. is it going to happen? >> no, it's not. i've been doing this for 43 years, and i suppose i should be a cynic by now, but i'm not. i'm very optimistic that this is going to be handled because a good part of the blockage was the fact that mitch mcconnell set as his goal the fact that obama wouldn't be re-e

to ambassador pickering who has been asked by secretary clinton to undertake an investigation review of what happened. he has not come out with his report yet and we're right before an election this has been politicized as your reporter said, and not by the administration, and i just think it's disturbing that somehow all of these reports come out piece meal and people try to draw broader conclusions, we really owe it to everybody concerned to take a deliberate look at this, and i think it's best if this comes out after the election so it's not political. >> peter, what's your response to that? should we just wait another couple of weeks? there will be hearings to find out the timeline? >> agree with nick up to a point, and he's right. we've been getting piece meal reports, but almost eight weeks after this tragic event, there are more -- there are more questions than answers and they persist, and it's unfair to the american people and it's wrong that we don't have these answers, why are we having this intelligence briefing by a senior unnamed intelligence official as opposed to having a tim
times were under reagan and clinton where economic growth was in excess of 4%. your an economist. are you thinking we're going to get 4% growth in the next couple of years? >> yeah, i do. if mr. romney is elected, we will get 4% to 5% growth. >> why? >> because he will attack the real problem. >> why? >> stimulus spending is like a band-aid. it's a temporary -- we need to solve the problems with regard to china, reopen our energy sector and have reasonable regulations to business so they're not afraid to invest. if we grew the economy at the pace that mr. reagan did, we would surely get 12 million jobs, even more than that and we would get unemployment down to some acceptable level. >> the tax drop under reagan, which everybody likes to quote, was significantly larger than anything being proposed, including by mitt romney and anything more than we can afford right now. but stay right there, peter. we'll come back to this. >> ali, let me bring in diane swonk, who can take the politics out of this for a moment. we're not going to wake up to the same economic problems on wednesday j

are not out of the question. remember under bill clinton, i was proud to be his labor secretary, 22 million net new jobs were created over eight years. so 12 million -- >> do you remember the job growth, though? you were averaging over 4% job growth during that period. >> yes. and the economy is larger and more people. i'm not saying we're going to do it. i think the 12 million is very optimistic. it is possible with a recovery, with a strong recovery, policies specific policies, i don't think there's a magic bullet, i don't think either governor romney or the president has any particular secret up his sleeve that is going to generate a lot of new jobs suddenly. >> right. and it's a tough one because it becomes a wash. they both made the same promise. the issue is what kind of jobs they're going to be. that's been a criticism of president obama. he has made up for all the jobs that have been lost on his watch, but as often happens, the recovery has created jobs that are not as lucrative as the ones before. the president's plan now that he's unveiled focuses on manufacturing jobs. he says he
. but the move comes on the heels of secretary of state hillary clinton's trip to algeria where the crisis was the focus. she is trying to secure algerian support for any international military action that could be needed to oust the al qaeda-linked rebels which have taken over the northern part of the country. >>> the american intelligence community managed to trim its budget. according to the director of national intelligence, james clapper, the budget for intelligence programs in fiscal 2012 was $53.9 billion. sounds like a heck of a lot of money, but it's the first time the intelligence budget has been cut since the september 1th attacks. the drop was very small. it was only 1%. but it is a trend worth noting, because it will probably continue, at least this year, set to drop another 2.4%. >>> nasa's recovery cure costy is at mars. today it finished its initial examination of martian soil. the results are pretty similar to volcanic soil found in the paradise of hawaii. cure curiosity determined what it was made of, the instrument beamed x-rays at the soil, sort of what geologists use
're going to continue to chat about this all morning. he writes by the end of president clinton's second term our economy created 23 million new jobs, incomes rose, poverty fell, deficits became the biggest surplus in history. and what his point in part of this op-ed is if you look to the last democrat who he says he's shaping himself in that, in that image, if you will, you know, he was successful in that kind of a strategy. >>> the first two years of president clinton's administration weren't terribly interesting. the economy didn't do very well. however, in november of 1994, when the republicans won the house and the senate, all of a sudden, the stock market started going up, job creation started going up, we got a cut in the capital gains tax, a cut in the capital gains tax, and all of clinton's spending programs were eliminated. all of the things he was going to spend money on. he was planning on having deficits $200 billion a year, if you look at his budget from '93 and '94. what changed was he lost control of congress and all of his spending plans were taken off the table. that's
in pennsylvania later today, as well. guess what, former president bill clinton coming to pennsylvania to campaign on monday. you turn on the tvs here, randi, all you see are campaign commercials. i saw a ton in the local news. 10 million in the final days and the romney campaign is outspending the obama campaign two to one here in pennsylvania. 20 electoral votes at stake. here is the latest poll in pennsylvania. franklin and marshal, a four-point advantage for the president. very tight. that's within the sampling error. the president used to have a double-digit lead in pennsylvania. now it's getting crowded. randi, the obama campaign says this is a sign of desperation by the romney campaign that they can't win in wisconsin, ohio and that's why they're coming to pennsylvania. romney campaign says just the opposite. they're trying to expand the map and they think they can do it here in pennsylvania. >> if you look at the math and it does work, it can certainly steal a big prize. this is a popular but pretty unsuccessful strategy for republicans, right? they have tried this over and over. >> yeah,
, and heal the planet. >> former president bill clinton hit back at those comments this week. >> he ridiculed the president, ridiculed the president for his efforts to fight global warming and economically benphyllo phye ways. he said, oh, you're going to turn back the seas. and my part of america, we would like it if someone could have done that yesterday. >> bloomberg business week had its own not so subtle message to nay sayers featuring this cover story and in a surprise move michael bloomberg endorsed president obama thursday saying the president is a strong leader on global climate change. professor of geosciences at princeton university. he has been studying climate science for three decades now. good morning. thank you for being here. you live in lower manhattan. you saw the storm's devastation first hand. were you surprised by sandy's magnitude? >> well orve, of course, i was surprised. even though i do this kind of work professionally. sandy was not caused by global warming, but it was made worse. believe me, it's no laughing matter. this situation is going to get worse as long as t
in florida by running on bill clinton's record and blaming george w. bush. independents are saying, what about your record, mr. president. >> we'll talk a lot more about the undecided states of america not hour. be sure to stay with us for that. we'll talk about new hampshire, the four electoral votes there could really be the difference in this historically close race. >>> this is a story that has a lot of people. we have the latest on malala, the 15-year-old girl shot by the taliban. s everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all of us serving you, around the country, around the corner. us bank. . >>> residents of char lsten and other cities are awaiting sandy's approach. the exact time and location of landfall, who knows. the storm is currently in the atlantic ocean. meteorologist alexandria steele will be along with the latest on is the storm's path. >>> sandy is expected to have a major impact on land and in the air. now, right now, amtra
secretary clinton made the right decision here. to order an independent, objective investigation and review and that's underway. sometimes these things take time. and they don't lend themselves to people's political endars. i also think, the two most important issues getting lost is, what can we do to upgrade embassy security, and that means that republicans and democrats should fully fund in the congress and receive security. and can we go after the groups that killed ambassador chris stevens and his colleagues? president obama said he will do that and i trust he is trying to do that. i think that's where we should be putting our attention, especially this week. >> a final question to you. is it possible that we may never know why certain crucial pieces of information that were known to some people very early on were not shared with the american public? that we'll never know whether there was a concerted decision and who made it? >> well, that would be a shame. it would be a problem, a travesty. and i think this is why congress really needs to dig into this. certainly the families of those
high school here in hoboken. 8th and clinton street. we really appreciate those donations. >> we have been seeing our correspondent who was here earlier today saw a lot of volunteers. saw guys with poles trying to clear out the drainage, letting the water drain out. that has to be heartening to see. >> that's amazing. the volunteers have been amazing. i was out with a team of volunteers tonight. we were just going through, knocking on doors, checking on seniors, especially the seniors on the tenth floor of a building. they can't get downstairs and they can't climb all of those stairs. so we were going around, check in on them, making sure they had food and water and that's what we need. we need more teams of volunteers making sure we are going to every building. even in the areas that aren't flooded. we need to check in on our residents that really need us right now. as we get through the power outage. >> the question you have been getting, is how quickly do you think the power can be restored. >> that's the question of the day. the estimates are a little scary, seven to ten days is w
of surrogates and i understand bill clinton will be picking up a number of campaign appearances on the campaign trail. so that is going to help matters. president obama can say, well, i'm president. and, you know, this takes priority over politics. and i think that will basically sit well with voters. >> let's talk about mitt romney. he decided to turn a campaign event in ohio into a relief effort. collecting food and collecting goods to send to the people who have been affected by superstorm sandy. good, bad, what? >> i think it was a very smart political move. again, you don't want to come off too overtly political. i think that was just the right measured response to the disaster. and i think if he went to -- you know, on a media tour of the disaster site that would seem too opportunistic, almost politically desperate. i think he made the right call there. >> the only thing is that reporters at the end of this event were shouting at him, asking him if he supported fema, if fema should disappear. governor romney didn't answer their questions. why do you suppose that was? >> because he knows t
administration. good to have you with us. richard socarides is former senior adviser to president clinton. ben smith we're going to go ahead and introduce. he is stuck in traffic, as you know, the traffic is so awful in new york city. i mean, it takes such a long time to even get across town or downtown, because, of course, with the subways only now getting back into service in a limited way, a huge problem. ben, normally i would mock you for not getting to my show, but today i will not. we'll start with john berman. he has a look at some of the stories making news. >> meanwhile, flights have resumed at laguardia after a lot of disruption from sandy. look at these pictures. it's impressive they got it open today. new york city's other two major airports reopened yesterday morning. this doesn't mean everything is back to normal. all three airports are running at reduced schedules. >>> cnn ireporter george dupont shot these stunning images in connecticut. both were just piled on top of each other at a boatyard on bluff avenue, and right near homes, practically on top of homes nearby. he's lived
't be headed to virginia. it's affecting the president in some of his campaigning this week with bill clinton. do we know if anything else could be changing because of the storm? >> one of the big things you saw, the without -- president obama has decided to stay here in d.c. at the white house to monitor sandy. mitt romney has changed the schedule so he will be back up in ohio with paul ryan. but one of the things that's going to be interesting sellery voting actually started this weekend -- is early voting actually started this weekend. in florida, maryland, there were lines in d.c. there's been encouragement for voters to get out this weekend and too thedo their early votine hurricane sandy comes through and messes up everything. >> i saw pictures over the weekend from joe johns, polling places in virginia. looked to be very long lines. people trying to get in before the storm hits. let me ask you this -- oftentimes in politics, in october before the big election, people talk about an october surprise. might this be the october surprise, this go round? >> you know, this is certainly surpri
. that rally did go on but not with him. with former president bill clinton as the starring attraction instead. but president obama had to cancel this and the reason is on the bottom of your screen. it's hurricane sandy. cnn's dan lothian is at the white house. we just heard the president making a plan for this big public announcement at 12:45. anything other than updating where we stand and what people need to do, depending on where they live? >> reporter: we're still trying to get more details on that. but we expect it will simply be an update at 12:45 on what the president has lrnd coearned comt of this meeting going on right now. the president getting briefed from some of the senior members of his team including janet napolitano and craig fugate and john brennan. the follows some of the briefings the president has been getting over the weekend. he also went over to fema headquarters where he had a chance to get a firsthand glimpse of what the federal government was doing to stay on top of this hurricane. again, the president promising that the federal government will help states in any way
who wants to make a donation can drop it off at hoboken high school at eighth and clinton street, we really appreciate that. we heard from a correspondent, i saw a lot of volunteers. they saw guys out trying to clear out drainage. that is heartening to see. >> it's amazing. volunteers have been absolutely amazing. i was with a team of volunteers tonight, going through, knocking on doors, checking on seniors, especialing those on a tenth floor of a building, hallway is dark, they can't get downstairs and can't climb all of the stairs, we were checking in, making sure they had food, bringing in water. we need more teams, making sure we are going to every single building. even in areas that aren't flooded. we need to check in on residents that really need us right now. we get through this power outage, what we're focused on. >> the question all day long, how quickly do you think power can be restored? >> that's the question the day. yeah, i mean, the estimates are a little scary, seven to ten days, what we're making sure -- part of the issue for us, two of the pump stations are flooded,
the responsibility elsewhere. the economy, it's george bush's fault. benghazi, hillary clinton's fault. well, the buck stops with the president of the united states. he asked for the job. it's his responsibility to stay on top of it and he right now is not staying on top of this recovery. >> rupert murdoch has tweeted tonight that he thinks that governor christie should now publicly declare very loudly and clearly, redeclare his support for mitt romney given all the praise he's lavished on the president and if he doesn't, then he would bear the blame, according to mr. murdoch, for the next four years in barack obama gets in. what do you make of that? >> oh, i don't go that far at all. i think at the point at which chris christie was saying that it was all quite legitimate. i think president obama at the beginning of this did keep his concentration on this and i think he was entitled to what chris christie said about him. what i'm saying is in the last couple of days, he has been 100% devoted to running for office. he has taken his eye off the ball and in some parts of new york, some parts of
. that was the philosophy as ceo, as governor, and as president clinton said, he does have a lot of class, but he's not talking about change. all he's offering is a big rerun of the same policies that created so much hardship for so many americans. and you know, governor romney has been out here making a lot of last-minute promises lately. said he's all about fighting for the middle class. said he would cut taxes for everybody. and ask something from nobody, but the problem is we heard those promises before. keep in mind governor romney lives just a few miles south of here in the state of massachusetts. love massachusetts. but during governor romney's campaign for governor down there, he promised the same thing he's promising now. said he would fight for jobs and middle class families. but once he took office, he pushed through a tax cut that overwhelmingly benefitted 278 of the wealthiest families in the state, and then he raised taxes and fees on middle class families to the tune of $750 million. does that sound familiar to you? now, when he's asked about this, he said, these weren't taxes. the
to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to the tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office. because as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher just to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow this nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a commonsense agenda that says when we educate a poor child, we'll all be better off. that says when we fund the research of a young scientist, her new discovery will benefit every american. we need a vision that says we don't just look out for ourselves. we look out for one another. we look out for future generations, and we meet those oblig
